West Coast rapper Game has revealed that an unreleased collaboration with Lil Wayne and Baby will make his new mixtape, Brake Lights set to drop next month.
In addition to Cash Money artists, Game linked with Southern rap newcomer Waka Flocka Flame for his underground project.
“Mixtapes, you don’t mix them joints,” Game said in an interview. “You just throw them out. But Cool wanted to mix them joints, make sure all the vocals and the beats was right, well blended. We dropped the ‘M.I.A’ joint — the LeBron, D. Wade and Chris Bosh joint — on the Internet. The people went nuts. It was the first song talking about that. A shot in the dark I threw out there for the people, man. We buzzin’ … I did a few collaboration. I got something I did with [Lil] Wayne before he left. I got something with Baby. Always gotta have them a part of anything red. Them my dudes. Waka Flocka came through to jump on the mixtape hook. I got some stuff, man.” (MTV)
The cover art to Game’s new mixtape leaked on the Internet earlier this month.
Game dropped his first leak, “M.I.A.”, off the mixtape earlier this week, and now, here is a look at the mixtapes cover. It is predominantly red with Game’s signature style name at the top with “brake lights” in lowercase beneath. DJ Skee‘s name is also featured on the cover as he will serve as the project’s host.
